A HORSE had a lucky escape after getting its leg stuck in a horsebox ramp.

Firefighters from Leek and Longton worked with a vet and the stable’s owner, in Barlaston, to free the horse using hydraulic cutting tools and a winch.

A Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “Thankfully she [horse] was back on her feet before crews came away.”
